Trusting your gut
Posted November 20, 2016on:
Should you trust your gut feelings or instinct?
According to the research reviewed in this video, the answer is yes and no.
Yes, if the decision might have too many and complex variables for most people to process. This is a form of “fast” thinking that is an unconscious pattern recognition.
No, if the decision is a straightforward one or if it involves being empathetic to someone else. This is a form of “slow” thinking that is conscious and effortful.
